Call and set up a meeting at the school. They will explain their teaching methodology and give you a school tour. You'll immediately get a sense of how comfortable the children are at this school. They may ask you to provide a copy of a report card or IEP to give them an understanding of your child's needs. You can schedule a day for your child to spend at the school to see how they feel about it and ensure it's a good fit. Our daughter fell in love with Wildwood after spending one trial-day there. We were also given a chance to speak with the teachers that taught our daughter during the trail-day to get their feedback and impression of how she fit in. The trial-day allowed our daughter to know for sure that she liked this school and she felt even more confident on her first day in September knowing that she had already attended one day in the Spring.
